Read the passage given below and answer the questions based on your understanding of the passage. (Question Nos. 6 – 10)
The idea and phrase “serious leisure’ comes from Stebbins’ interviewees, who used the word “serious” to underline the extent of their passion for a favourite leisure activity. In this case, the term embodies positive qualities such as importance and sincerity, rather than negative traits such as gravity or anxiety. Whereas casual leisure supplies pleasure, and project-base leisure delivers a temporary reward, serious leisure generates deep and enduring sensations of fulfilment.
There are six defining characteristics to all serious leisure. First, there is the occasional need to persevere, as when mountain climbers push through exhaustion to reach a peak. Second, is that of finding a leisure career in the activity, with turning points and a sense of advancement. Third, serious leisure takes significant personal effort based on specially acquired knowledge, training, experience, or skill. In this quality, serious leisure is the opposite of its casual counterpart, which requires no expertise. Fourth, there are eight durable benefits or outcomes to serious leisure: self-actualization, selfenrichment, self-expression, regeneration or renewal of self, feelings of accomplishment, enhancement of self-image, social interaction and belongingness, and lasting physical products of the activity. Fifth, serious leisure participants tend to identify strongly with their chosen pursuits, and may be quick to assert their affiliation. Sixth, a unique ethos, or spirit of the community, exists around each serious leisure activity.
There are three main types of serious leisure : amateurism, volunteering, and hobbies. Amateurs operate in the fields of art, science, sport, and entertainment.
